With almost a month of 2015 already behind us, the time for reflection, contemplation and planning is over and the time for action is upon us. 2015 is already proving to be an interesting years for sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry with the Greenshowroom and Ethical Fashion Show in Berlin reporting a 30 percent increase in exhibitors and visitors. I am pretty sure that there are so many more exciting developments yet to happen in 2015 and every effort that we, as both consumers and bloggers, make from buying less to posting about brands with ethics, will make a difference. For January’s round up, I wanted to share some of the ways that bloggers are pledging, planning and inspiring others to make 2015 both sustainable and stylish.
